AWE blind tasting - a bit jammy on the nose with lots of cola character, sweet woodiness, root beer, biter herbs, jammy root beer, cool and seamless if monolithic with prominent tannins backing nice bitter cherry fruit, uncomplicated if impressively structured, nice fruit fights to get out on the backend, finishes fairly strong with really nice fruit but bit short, 85-86

The nose showed red berries, cedar and spice. On the palate, I found rich red fruits but it shut down hard as tannin coated the palate. This wine needs time to show its true colors.

The nose was perfumed with floral and spice notes, red berries and hints of barnyard. On the palate, it was tight with focused red fruits and faded cinnamon. The finish was tannic but still pleasant, showing red berries.

The nose showed dark red fruits with sweet spice and the slightest hint of barnyard. On the palate, I found a mix of red and black berries on a medium to full bodied wine with zesty acidity keeping it real. The fruit turned sour and saturating on the finish as this wine showed it’s intense concentration of fruit.

A well-balanced, medium bodied wine that was drinkable right out of the bottle, long finish of cherries and the palatte has notes of berries and other fruits, perhaps a raspberry-rose perfume as well. After decanting, the 2nd day was alright, the 3rd day was drinkable, just not as vibrant. I do feel that other vintages have been much more exciting.

Light, watery feel, subtle flavors. A great bargain at my local supermarket (Hy-Vee).

A fair mix of fruit, fragrant and light. Easy to drink on its own though it did go well with a caramelized onion torte.

Ripe cherry and plum flavors, with hints of raisin and licorice, highlight this Barolo. At its core is sweet fruit, with refined tannins and freshness for support. Fine balance and harmony make this approachable now with decanting. Best from 2012 through 2024. -BS

Robert Parker 91 Points Michele Chiarlo is one of Piemonte's truly great winemakers. The family owns 60 hectares of vineyards in three of the classic growing areas - Langhe, Monferrato and Gavi. Stefano Chiarlo heads the technical staff overseeing the vineyards and viticulture. Stefano's ethos can be summed up thus: a balanced or rigorous pruning depending on the oenological goals, a technique of guided pest control using products with no environmental impact, meticulous manual thinning-out of the grape clusters, tuffing between the rows and no use of anti-mould products. Michele Chiarlo wines continue to win awards worldwide. Grapes : 100% Nebbiolo Region : Italy / Piedmont / Barbaresco DOCG Maker : Stefano Chiarlo & Gianni Meleni Notes : Full, elegant and aristocratic with a hint of green peppercorns and spice in the background. Serve : Game, roast meats, and mature cheese. ABV : 13.50%

A simple, quaffing red wine that you don't have to think about. Plum and blackberry fruit, a hint of spice and tangy acids make this a good match for lively tomato-based dishes.

A highly extracted, intense Barbera, this wine brims with ripe, jammy flavors of black plum and wild cherry and aromas of violets, spice and new oak wrapped in a velvety texture underscored by firm tannins. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

Winemaker's Notes:

Michele Chiarlo makes a wide range of wines from some of the very best sites in Piedmont, but his base is in Calamadrana. The superb elegance and richness of this wine places it among the finest wines in Chiarlo’s portfolio. This Barbera has a wonderful luscious nose of cedar, cherries and chocolate. It has a complex yet fresh palate and fine, long finish. An excellent and very complete wine. Serve it will red meats, game or mature cheese.
